Cop Takes Care of Mom's Baby When She Can't & Their Cute Cuddle Goes Viral (PHOTO)

cop and babyOne of the many things I worry about as a mom is what would happen to my kids if I were somehow not able to care for them? This is not just big picture (I die in a plane crash) but little picture as well (I choke on a corn dog and need to be assisted off of a mechanical bull while my children watch). This viral photo of a police officer from Overland Park, Kansas reminds me that even tough old cops can sweet talk a baby if needed.


A woman named Jilli Nel took this picture of Officer Andy Black caring for a baby girl after her mother had a seizure at a local mall. The photo has gone viral, as the occasional "good act caught on camera" will.

PLEASE SHARE !!!!!I just had to stop, chat and ask if I may take his photo....Paramedics were helping this little...

Has a stranger ever stepped in to help you with your kids? What happened?
